 We conclude the Winter film series with the documentary, This is not a Film. In 2011, Jafar Panahi, the award winning Iranian director, was under house arrest for a month while appealing his sentence –six years in prison and a 20 year ban from filmmaking. In defiance of the ban he decided to document his days and share it with the rest of the world. The result is This is Not a Film, a clandestine documentary, shot partially on an iPhone and smuggled out of Iran in time for submission to Cannes Film Festival. Steve Hunt will introduce the film and will follow with a discussion after the movie.
